Your already alpha sorting right? couldn't you add just the object type to the sort method? 80% of my window is always filled with text objects. having them grouped would pretty it up by itself. (I never remember all the names I use to search.)
Thinking along those lines, I will now always start my text objects with z. That will fix it for me.
Using the search box wouldn't be necessary in my project if the window only contained the objects of the current layout event sheet (as an option and if it's possible). Just an observation.kenhes2012-11-12 21:03:17
